An assorted selection of tension rings in the classic , minimalist style which we have been making for over 30 years!
This timeless design is a popular choice for a dress ring, as it incorporates most of the birthstones or their alternatives, with it being simple and uncluttered in its appearance.
These rings are made entirely by hand, and the shoulder decoration is of 9 carat gold.
We can obtain all gemstones for this design, both precious and semi precious, and are more than happy to discuss mounting your own gemstones, depending on the size.
Tension setting is a method of holding a gemstone in a ring so that it appears suspended in mid air. Despite it appearing to be precariously held, there are two factors which ensure that the stone is securely fixed in place.
We can also make these rings in smaller or larger sizes other than those listed.
One being the thickness of the precious metal is vital in ensuring that there is enough tensile strength so as to allow the jewel to not be affected during everyday wear.
Secondly, a small concave groove is accurately cut by hand to match the shape of the edge of each stone, so that when the pressure of the setting is applied, it sits perfectly within .
All this being said, tension setting is perhaps one of the best ways to display a gemstone at its best , by letting light pass into it from all angles.
